“The Walking Dead” star Alanna Masterson is used to fighting zombies, but she took on a new enemy this week: body shamers.
In a post on Instagram, Masterson called out those who made cruel comments about her weight and appearance following this week’s episode of the AMC series, which focused on her character, Tara.
“Dear Instagram trolls, body shamers, and the men and woman who think it’s ok to comment on my weight: I hope that you don’t have children,” Masterson wrote, alongside a picture of her daughter.”
“So before you decide to make a comment about my chest being ‘too large’ or how ‘fat’ I’ve become, just know that this little girl got the best start to life,” she continued. “I wouldn’t have changed it for a second. I would’ve gladly continued to eat enough calories to produce milk for her little bones to grow.”
Masterson has been on the show since Season 4, and often provides some of the series’ funnier moments, as seen in this week’s episode.
“Also, grow the f— up,” she said. “Your mother should be ashamed for raising such a judgmental bully. I’m sure she knows how ‘courageous’ you must be for trolling and hiding behind your Iphone and computers.”
